1
Jocket Silks 1. WYCLIF
J: Harry Bentley
T: Ralph Beckett
3
9-7
Maiden/ novice winner over 7f last summer and improved for step up to 1m when second in Pontefract listed on final start. Up 4f in trip for return and he'll require smart effort under top weight.

2
Jocket Silks 2. KING'S CAPER
J: Frankie Dettori
T: Mark Johnston
3
9-6
Three wins around 1m at 2. Well-held fifth in Lingfield Derby Trial on reappearance and others in this line-up look more progressive. Yard does have excellent record in the race, though.

3
Jocket Silks 3. BRIGHT MELODY (IRE)
J: William Buick
T: Charlie Appleby
3
9-5
Overcame inexperience to make a winning start in novice at Chelmsford in January. Encouraging third in 1¼m Kempton Group 3 5 months later and there should be more to come at 1½m. Cheekpieces added.

4
Jocket Silks 4. CONVICT
J: Tom Marquand
T: William Haggas
3
9-3
Improved with each start at 2, culminating with 1¼m Newmarket nursery win in October. Major surprise if he doesn't do even better over this sort of trip at 3.

5
Jocket Silks 5. SUBJECTIVIST
J: Ryan Moore
T: Mark Johnston
3
9-1
Pretty useful juvenile, the highlight being his second in 1m Salisbury listed race. Has had plenty of racing but there's a possibility he could improve over this longer trip.

6
Jocket Silks 6. SUMMERONSEVENHILLS (USA)
J: Shane Kelly
T: Richard Hughes
3
9-1
Much improved for blinkers and a switch to handicaps when scoring twice on AW at the end of 2019. Returned with creditable 9¾ lengths third in Lingfield Derby Trial 12 days ago.

7
Jocket Silks 7. HUKUM (IRE)
J: Jim Crowley
T: Owen Burrows
3
8-11
Confirmed debut promise when storming home to win 1m Kempton novice in November. Lacks experience for a race of this nature but he's a good prospect and this significantly longer trip could suit.

8
Jocket Silks 8. TO NATHANIEL
J: Robert Havlin
T: John Gosden
3
8-9
Typical improver for the yard who added to his novice win in January when shading tight finish in 11f Kempton handicap 5 days ago. Extra 1f now in favour and respected under 4 lb penalty.

9
Jocket Silks 9. OLEKSANDER
J: David Egan
T: Archie Watson
3
8-7
Unbeaten in 2 runs last year, both over 1m. Solid reappearance run in 1¼m Haydock handicap 10 days ago but Kipps was 3½ lengths ahead of him in second. Outside stall tricky.

10
Jocket Silks 10. BODYLINE (IRE)
J: Luke Morris
T: Sir Mark Prescott Bt
3
8-6
Progressive last season and took another marked step forward when a strong-finishing second at Yarmouth (1¼m) 14 days ago. More to come but he is drawn wider than ideal.

11
Jocket Silks 11. GLENTIES (USA)
J: Andrea Atzeni
T: Mark Johnston
3
8-5
Left 2-y-o form behind when a good third (Kipps second) in Haydock handicap 10 days ago but he failed to improve for the step up to this trip when second of 3 at Goodwood on Sunday.

12
Jocket Silks 12. TRUMPET MAN
J: Joe Fanning
T: Mark Johnston
3
8-5
Failed to win in 3 starts as juvenile but did make steady progress and his breeding suggests he should really come into his own over middle distances this year. No surprise if he goes well. Gelded.

13
Jocket Silks 13. KIPPS (IRE)
J: David Probert
T: Hughie Morrison
3
8-4
Lingfield novice winner in December and shaped very well when second (Glenties and Oleksander over 3 lengths back in third/fourth) in 1¼m Haydock handicap 10 days ago. Well treated off same mark.

14
Jocket Silks 14. LOCKED N' LOADED
J: Kieran O'Neill
T: Tim Fitzgerald
3
8-2
Did very well in Wolverhampton handicaps at up to 9.5f for this yard over the winter but this a much more competitive race now returning to the turf. Stamina not assured either.

15
Jocket Silks 15. ARTHURIAN FABLE (IRE)
J: Martin Dwyer
T: Brian Meehan
3
8-2
Stepped up on any of his juvenile efforts when narrowly denied on 1¼m Newmarket handicap debut/reappearance 10 days ago. Goes off the same mark now so needs considering. Likely to stay 1½m

16
Jocket Silks 16. GROUP ONE POWER
J: Silvestre De Sousa
T: Andrew Balding
3
8-1
Successful over 1m on AW on first 2 starts. Progressed again when 3 lengths fourth (Bodyline second) in 1¼m Yarmouth handicap 14 days ago. Likely capable of better again for in-form yard.

17
Jocket Silks 17. WIN O'CLOCK
J: Hollie Doyle
T: Roger Charlton
3
8-0
Benefited from step up in trip when making winning start in handicaps over 1¼m at Haydock 9 days ago. The manner in which he came clear late on strongly suggests 1½m will see him in even better light.

18
Jocket Silks 18. BERKSHIRE SAVVY
J: Raul Da Silva
T: Andrew Balding
3
7-12
7f Wolverhampton novice winner last summer. Creditable sixth on Haydock return 10 days ago but a few of these rivals were in front of him. Also 2 lb out of handicap here.

Analyst's Verdict

The vast majority of the field tackles 1½m for the first time and plenty are likely to improve for it. KIPPS shaped really well on his Haydock return 10 days ago and gets the vote from the same mark. Arthurian Fable is another who looks well treated turned out before reassessed on the back of a narrow reappearance defeat. Win O'Clock, Convict and Trumpet Man also make the shortlist.

The race is a Handicap contest which is run over a distance of 1 mile, 3 furlongs and 211 yards, and is open to colts and geldings aged three years.

The most recent winner of the race was the Mark Johnston-trained Baghdad, who took the 2018 renewal by a distance of just a neck, under jockey Andrea Atzeni, in what proved to be a thriller.

Mark Johnston has claimed more success in the race than any other trainer, winning the King George V Stakes on no less than six occasions: Diaghilef (1995), Systematic (2002), Fantastic Love (2003), Linas Selection (2006), Fennell Bay (2012) and Baghdad (2018)

Jockey Pat Eddery holds the most victories by a jockey in the King George V Stakes, having claimed success on three occasions: Carlingford (1989), Source of Light (1992) and Give The Sip (2000).
